When houseplants are set free in the summer :)

Here are some pics of a few of my houseplants that I allow to enjoy the summer outdoors. The summer brings out the best in some.

Posted this one before...

Thanks for looking,

Thanks for sharing, David!

I set most of mine free during the Summer, too.
Some I even plant in the garden directly. Hoyas I hang in trees or under eaves.....
this is some of the best Hoya weather right now.

Nice pics Dave - looks like you're having fun! ;o)

Food for thought: Are we really setting our houseplants free in the summer, or confining them in the winter? ;o)

I'm with you though - I keep no plant material indoors over the summer, though this weekend I'll be starting to prepare them to be brought indoors as soon as night temps start dipping too far below 55* on a regular basis.

Very Very nice Dave...

I love that butterfly, the tons of flowers on your Hoya! White I think..I have always wanted a white flowering one..And your crown of thorns is amazing..

Thank you for sharing with us..Don't miss the point about when to start bringing them in..I sure got it as much as I hate to accept it..
